Skills

As with most games like this, you'll earn more skills as you level up your character. As you level, you'll get Energy to unlock more skill slots, and as your skills level up, you get support skills to beef them up in power as well.

Skills have different tags to denote what kind of skill they are. The classifications of them are: Active Skills, Support Skills, Passive Skills, and Trigger Skills. This system offers players flexibility in how you want to build out your character and power up your main skills.

Talents

In addition to skills, there are Talent trees that you can unlock to give your charcters more benefits and buffs. There are six different main trees to choose from, and each of them has 3 additional trees to unlock as you level. Here's the six Talent Trees:

  • God of Might
  • Goddess of Hunting
  • Goddess of Knowledge
  • God of War
  • Goddess of Darkness
  • God of Machines

In each Talent Tree, you have a bunch of different nodes that will give your character more benefits. This can be anything from main stat increases, to critical strike, to defenses and more. There is a track that you have to go down depending on which first node you choose, so planning out your tree will be important for a smooth leveling process.

Gearing

As for gearing, gear is going to be have different affixes on them. Similar to the tree, there are stats that will synergize with your build more than others. Ultimately, if you find gear in your leveling process that is synergistic, great, but don't worry too much about it until you're level capped. Then you can start to try and hunt down your best in slot gear.

Generally speaking while leveling, higher level / statted gear is going to serve you better than a lower piece of gear that has your ideal affixes.

And there you have it! This should give you a solid understanding of the game, and get off to a great start for when the game launches later this year.
